Turn Solid Glass Objects into Liquid by Splashing Some Water

Here’s a fun weekend photo project for you to try: turn solid glass objects into liquid by splashing water onto them. That’s what Mexico City-based photographer Jean Bérard did for his series titled Liquid Glass. He set various glass vessels onto a table, and photographed them multiple times while splashing the water contained within and tossing water on from the outside.

The photographs were then merged into single composite photos that make the objects look like they’re created entirely out of water.

Are Liquid Lenses The Next Big Thing in Photography?

Major camera makers including Olympus, Samsung and Sony have all filed patents in recent days for liquid lens technology. Unlike traditional glass lenses, liquid lenses don’t have any moving parts. Instead, liquid is used to focus light, and different voltages are applied to the liquid to change the shape of the liquid, thereby controlling the image. In the video above, techie Ben Krasnow introduces the technology, and then shows off a device he made by ripping a liquid lens out of a USB webcam.

Beautiful Hand-Tossed Water Sculptures in Super Slow Motion

Forget throwing water balloons at people’s faces — if you ever get your hands on a super expensive slow-motion camera, tossing around water is awesome enough. Shinchi Maruyama is an artist that photographs hand-tossed liquid sculptures using a Phase One P45 camera and a Broncolor Strobe. He also used a high-speed camera to capture video of sculptures being “made”. The results are beautiful.
